One of the all-time great Davis-area water polo players, former Stanford star Kris Koblik begins her first year as an assistant coach for the Aggie program.
In four years in the Cardinal program, Koblik scored 74 career goals and helped lead the Farm to four top-five finishes, including a national runner-up showing in 2001. She earned USWP All-America honors three times, including second-team honors as a sophomore in 1999. Additionally, Koblik twice won All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation recognition and was a perennial AWPCA All-Academic honoree.
Before her collegiate career, Koblik earned prep All-America honors at Davis Senior High in each of her last two seasons. She also was a two-time All-American in club ball for the Davis Water Polo club team. However, before achieving such accolades, Koblik was something of a pioneer for area girls' water polo - as an underclassman, she and eventual Aggie Ligaya Smith played for the Blue Devil boys' team before a girls' team was formed.
After graduating from Stanford, she returned to her high school alma mater to serve as an assistant coach to Doug Wright. Koblik was a part of the Blue Devils' remarkable streaks of three consecutive Sac-Joaquin Section titles and 95 straight wins.
